About this listing
The HackerHome Network
Whether you're new to the Valley, bored with your current housing or need a transient place... I would like to help. When you reserve with me, you'll have instant friends and be part of a network of 11 homes in the Bay Area.
The open dining and living area is setup to have a comfortable place to work or relax. There's a separate communal work area with multiple desks.
3 bedrooms - 1 private and 2 shared rooms
2 full bathrooms
All utilities are included and the WIFI is fast!
Clean linens/bedding are provided + a fresh towel.
Why would someone say light cooking? Home prepped meals really warms up the house and it's encouraged.
Interaction with Guests
It's a house full of people & different schedules. So please use ear plugs if necessary. If you're a light sleeper or can't sleep on a single mattress, this may not be the right place for you.
We are a very communal/respectful group and strive to provide space for everyone to work and hangout. Remember that work, musical instruments and books take precedence over the television.
Daly City is a location that fits the budget and only an 8 minute walk to Bart! It only takes 20 minutes to downtown San Francisco.
Other Things to Note
More than one suitcase? Consult with me prior to making your reservation.
Respectful Housing for Women
Females in a separate room. If you'd like to stay in the girls' room, please check with me on availability before reserving. If you don't have a preference, then just make your reservation.
The Airbnb cleaning fee is to make sure you have a clean bed upon arrival and not to clean up after you. All spaces are shared, so please be mindful of picking up after yourself. If you're a longer term guest, remember to use one bath towel and wash it with your own load of laundry.
Best Way to Reach Me
1. Complete your Airbnb profile with an ID/Passport and connect your social networks.
2. One line about your purpose of visit.
3. Let me know your duration of stay and estimated time of arrival on your check in date.
Clean your dishes right away
Smoke only in the backyard
If you must invite an associate/friend over, consult with me first
Be conscientious of morning bathroom usage
Do not snooze your alarm
Use earphones, not speakers - unless it's a family event
We Prefer That You
be respectful of the space and to fellow housemates
clean up after yourself by making your bed and washing your dishes
have an optimistic outlook and laugh a lot =D
Amazing experience! I spent 3 weeks in the hackerhome, I met a lot of interesting people who became my friends and Vic helped me sooo much !!! Thank You!
Accurate description, close to BART, free unlimited ramen noodles. Decent bunk bed / hostel setup.
Vic was a great host. He was very friendly and helpful, and he provided everything needed. I didn't have any issues during my stay here. The neighbourhood is pretty quiet, which is nice, and there are the Metro Mall and the Serramonte Centre which are a reasonable walking distance from the location.
I enjoyed my stay at this place, mostly because I met new people and made good friends with the one only other girl at the house.
The room was OK, although not much space for your clothes :(( I stayed for 5 days, never unpacked my suitcase due to lack of space. I was staying in a 4 bed dorm room, which was quiet small, but it was perfect for me as I was in town during the whole day and I just went to sleep in the evening.
Considering the $30 cleaning fee, the bathroom should have been MUCH cleaner!!! On the bright side, Vic provides a towel and there's a blow dryer in the bathroom.
The area is quiet, but I felt much safer going home with my new friend, rather than alone in the evening. BART train that takes you downtown and to the airport is really close, maybe 10 minute walk. There's a Walgreens also close by. Getting in and out of the house is easy, there's a code system to use. Overall I would recommend this place to fellow airbnb guests, I just hope that the bathroom situation gets better.
Great place to accese BART station (about 10 minute).
Host was very kind. There has big television.
I had nice time. Thank you.
I spent a week here while I was in town for a conference. Vic let me know I would be the only woman in the house and offered to move me to another house in the network, but I opted to stay here since it was on the BART. The house was very clean and comfortable, and the surrounding area is safe and quiet. The housemates were a mix of people new to the area looking for a permanent place and people visiting from out of town. Noise at night and showering in the morning were not issues. If you are traveling on a budget and like being social with people at home, this is the perfect place!
The BART is a 10 minute walk away, making the airport, Mission District, and convention center extremely convenient. There is a Walgreens and a few places to eat a few blocks away. I highly recommend both Al Fin and Estrada's - it was featured on Restaurant Impossible!
